Can you guess the location of this month’s special St Patrick’s Day Irish postcard poser?

For those who are new to this feature on our blog, every month we share a postcard-style photo taken somewhere in the UK, or in this case in Ireland. It could be a particular property, a famous landmark, or just a view of the town centre. All you have to do is tell us where and when the photo was taken.Where is this?

How quickly can you work it out? Please post your answers in the comments section. It looks quite tricky to me but maybe you can prove me wrong!

I don’t have a clue, but it’s a beautiful church, and the postcard is obviously pretty old. It’s a very interesting photo as well.

Best wishes to you all

It’s the Friary Church of New Ross, County Wexford. I don’t know the date, but there’s a distinctive letter box in the wall that a postal historian might be able to follow up.
I made this comment last night, but it seems to have been deleted during the day.

Well done Martin! You’re right – it’s Friary A C Church in Wexford! I think that you commented on the picture as you can see your response if you click on the image. The image has been taken from our new Lawrence Collection which includes photos of Ireland from 1870 to 1910.
